I love Raquel Allegra. A young designer who works with recycled jersey from the Los Angeles county jail, she stretches and destroys the fabric to make it drapey in some places, sheer in others. I love it, and wish I could dress like this without looking like some kind of super-fashion woodland elf.
Wait. I do want to look like that. Um, well really I just can't afford it.
Maybe I'll watch some videos online and see if I can't learn how to make something like this myself, add it to my ever-growing list of impossibly time-consuming projects.
Images from google. The last three are from her new Spring 2010 line, and there's a slideshow at Refinery 29.
